I love it how fifty year olds are like “BOTTLED WATER IS SO EVIL! It’s SUCH A WASTE OF PLASTIC!” However, if you place mountains of sugar that was acquired through industrial farming and some psychotropic compounds into the water and make it into liquid candy they’re like “THIS IS AN EXCELLENT USE OF PLASTIC AND YOU SHOULD POUR THIS STUFF INTO YOURSELF AND YOUR CHILDREN!”
There is definitely a fourth category here though…people realizing that things that their parents think are great and acceptable are in fact terrible (examples…coal…and homophobia.)
"I remember ‘Booze Cruise.’ I remember being on the top of that boat and shooting that scene and sort of having that impulse to look behind me to see if anybody was going to call ‘Cut!’ or anything. It just seemed like this isn’t how it’s done in television or anything having to do with a camera. This is only in real life that someone would take forever to say ‘I love you’ or be so nervous that no words come out or some of these things that are so real." - John Krasinski
I know you don’t like to talk, but you gotta do it for her.
Yadriel & Maria appreciation post ✿◕‿◕✿
HE SAID MORE THAN HE DID ALL SEASON. I THOUGHT HE DIDN’T CARE. I THOUGHT HE WAS JUST BEING NICE AND LETTING HIS BABY MAMA SEE THE BABY THAT HE PROBABLY DIDN’T REALLY WANT AND BARELY LOOKED AFTER BUT I WAS FUCKING WRONG. I WAS WRONG ABOUT HIM. HE’S JUST QUIET. THE DUDE IS STOIC AS FUCK AND HE FUCKING LOVES MARIA AND HE LOVES THAT BABY AND IT’S FUCKING BEAUTIFUL THE WAY HE GUSHES AND TALKS TO HER LIKE MARIA ASKED HIM TO DO BECAUSE HE WANTS HER TO GROW UP SMART AND LOVED.
But also look at how cute the baby is dressed in each visit. Who did that? Daddy did. But that’s exactly the kind of visual cue that gets lost when he’s getting judged for his bald head, tattoos and stoic (thuggish?) demeanor.

SIGNAL BOOST THIS NEWS! Seriously, how come this isn’t all over tumblr? Angelina Jolie presided over the largest ever global anti-rape summit. She is using her celebrity for good. She is addressing rape in wartime and in conflict zones, which is where it is perpetuated on the most massive scale and in which context always has been used as a weapon.
Feminists of tumblr should get behind this woman. Let’s stop the perpetual erasure and trivialization of women in the media through their sexualization and start looking at the work that they do. Her acts here are easily in danger of being eclipsed by her image in the tabloids which is more concerned with her relationship to Brad Pitt and the fact that she is a sex symbol than the important feminist work that she is performing RIGHT NOW.
I am such a fan of this lady… and she does not deserve to be trivialized for being a woman, a sex symbol, and a celebrity. Here, she is working for social justice for women all over the world. She’s doing what’s right.
A truly MINDBLOWING lesson on the origin of American Southern accents.
The gif could not be more perfect in describing what just happened.
yay historical linguistics!
People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.
